2014-2015 Raising a Reader Pre and Post Survey Results
We are grateful to parents for the feedback provided via the Raising A Reader Pre and Post Surveys.
Here are some highlights from the results:
- There are more read-aloud sessions occurring post Raising a Reader. Families are reading nearly 7 days a week.
-Children are more actively engaged in the reading process.... they ask questions and read the story back to the parent. Year end results show children are requesting read aloud time 41% more often.
- The library is used more actively and thoroughly. Parent responses show a 31% increase in checking out materials to take home.
-By program end, your children are choosing books 3 times more often than screen time.
-Also, more children indicate that books are their favorite thing. Yea!
We are pleased with these results. Thank you for taking time to make a difference in your children's lives to insure their successful future.
